Champagne Brice Heritage NV (XX)
IMPORTED GROWER CHAMPAGNE
The Brice family has lived in the village of Bouzy since the 17th century. Brice owns twelve hectares of vines, eight of which are in the prime mid-slopes of the Grand Cru village of Bouzy - mostly Pinot Noir with one hectare of Chardonnay. These eight hectares are divided into only 16 plots, making them quite large by Champagne standards. The remaining estate vineyards are in Chigny-lès-Roses (1.5 hectares of Pinot Noir & Pinot Meunier) and Loches-sur-Ource in the Aube (2.5 hectares of Pinot Noir). All vineyards are farmed organically, and the house style avoids malolactic fermentation entirely. Winemaker | Christophe Constant
We feel very privileged to be the Australian ambassador of these prestigious grower cuvee’s.
Powerful notes of spice from both the pinot noir fruit and the use of oak barrels for ageing the reserves. This wine shows layers of complexity, with preserved cherry and raspberry aromas and baked apple tarte with hints of cinnamon. The palate is textural, fine and long. Low dosage showcases the powerful line that the addition of chardonnay to the blend brings.
Complex. Powerful. Structured and long.
